The less pretty sights of Arawa

What can we say? Bougainville is still recovering from a civil war, and Arawa took a bit of a beating.

Here are some of the buildings that are looking a bit worse for wear.

Looks like Arawa even had a squash court! I don’t know if there’s anywhere in PNG at present that has a squash court! (Maybe Port Moresby does, but I wouldn’t know).

Lastly, here’s a road that’s not in quite as good a shape as the ones I posted earlier.

Ok, now after reading this post, go back and look at the previous post of the nice sights and rejoice that this town is slowly building itself back up again. Arawa is a nice town with a lot of potential, and it’s going places.
